Bath Time Training

Puppies make messes… that’s a given. But not teaching a dog a bath is fun from the start also has its issues.

One of my goals with Nym will be to make this interesting and not scary, right from the start. I’m going to start with “fun baths”, literally baths where it’s just water and toys. After this is okay, shampoo and grooming will be added on, so there isn’t a fear regarding being wet, and should end the fear of baths before it starts.

Doing this, I should be able to make bath time a pleasant experience for both of us. In the long run, this should pay for itself.

Poodles were bred to be water retrieving dogs, so I don’t expect this to take long at all.
